Price made 37 saves through regulation and overtime, then PA Parenteau scored the only goal of the shootout to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 win against the Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday.
The loss proved costly to Calgary. Right wing Joe Colborne left the game with an upper-body injury after three shifts in the second period, and center Matt Stajan was forced from the game midway through the third after a knee-on-knee collision with Canadiens defenseman Jarred Tinordi, who was penalized on the play. Again I don’t like seeing guys get hurt, but this was just after all-star Stajan set up the Habs’ tying goal.
The Calgary power play was the difference on this night, as Calgary failed to capitalize on three power plays in the final 10 minutes of regulation. They went 0-7 in the game.
Forward Mason Raymond, who is tied for the Flames lead in goals with five, was placed on injured reserve earlier Tuesday with a shoulder injury; he is expected to be week-to-week.
